We spoke to these real parent testers to get their review...
How did this product make your life easier?
Laura: I was very impressed with this product. It is small and compact enough to fit in the car. It would be fantastic for taking on holiday. It would also be very good for picnics. I have used it as a second highchair when my nieces come over. This has been really useful my brother as he has not had to put their full-size high chair in the car when they come to visit.
Abigail: This product makes my life easier because I don’t have to have a huge high chair taking up space in my dining room. It’s compact and because it fits on a regular chair or on the floor, it can be used on the go too. This means I don’t have to worry about using a high chair when out and about as I can pack this one up in its travel bag and take it with me.
Melissa: When visiting family who did not have a high chair it was always a little faffy, the little one had to be on our knee etc but this chair is so easy to take with us and doesn't take up too much space in the car either. It is very quick to put up, a must when you have a hungry toddler to feed. It is super easy to clean and adjust the straps etc to fit a variety of chairs.
Would you recommend this product to other parents?
Laura F: Although it’s a little more expensive than other booster seats on the market, it feels sturdy and secure, wipes clean easily and there’s plenty of room in it so it will last you ages. There are also a variety of colour options so you can pick a colour that suits you and your baby. It folds down small and compact and comes with a handy travel bag.
Tiffany: It’s so easy to use, store and carry around. It’s really lightweight, with its own handy bag with shoulder straps, to take away with you - either to a restaurant or even on a picnic or a camping holiday. If you want to neaten your the dining area, it’s easy to fold and put away. Easy to clean too as it’s a hard plastic.
Kate: The price of this chair is a fraction of most high chairs and you get a 2in1 product. It is a space saver as you don’t need a big high chair taking over your kitchen. Having the chair sit at the table means they are able to really integrate with the rest of the family at mealtimes. The build quality of this chair is excellent and you feel like it will happily fold and unfold as many times as you need it too. The fastenings to attach the chair to a dining chair are substantial and you have confidence that your toddler is safe. When out and about, the chair allows you to enjoy a picnic with your toddler whilst ensuring they are safe and you can all enjoy your food without them running round! It’s also compact enough, when folded, that you can easily take it to friends or family homes easily.
Would you choose this product above all others on the market?
Hannah: The world we live in at the moment because of COVID has made eating out much more challenging, this product has helped ease a lot of anxiety as I know that my baby is eating in a clean and safe environment. It is one of the only dining boosters on the market which will last up until 3 years. It's compact and conforms to the correct safety standards. The tray can also be washed in the dishwasher. It’s a good price point for something which you can keep in the boot of the car and use on holiday or out on a day trip. I think this product should be a strong contender to win this category as there is not many others on the market with as many features and at this price point.
Melissa: I've never seen another high chair that folds so small and is so sturdy. The others seem to be rather flimsy and or bulky. The ease of putting it up.ans down certainly helps too. The tray is a great addition too. Many travel high chairs don't have the tray so the child needs to fit at the right height for the table. This isn't as bad with having the tray.
Lucy: No, although the product is compact and easy to use the back panel does lean back slightly which caused some issue with keeping my son sat upright. The back panel does need to been fixed or more adjustable to ensure that it will work with any chair. I also found that food could easily collect under the seat where it attaches to the chair.
What changes would you make to this product?
Laura F: My only criticism of the product is that the straps are material. It is the same problem with all highchair and booster seats. After a while the straps get stained and are a nightmare to clean. From what I’ve seen the straps can’t be taken off to be thrown into the washing machine so after a while they will become quite dirty and unhygienic.
Kate: I honestly can’t think of anything I would change about this product. It’s easy to clean, well constructed, foldable, portable, space saving and great value for money. I love the fact that it removes the traditional high chair from mealtimes and allows toddlers to join everyone else at the table. This is great for them both on a social level and on a developmental level. Love this product.
Abigail: I’d add a padded cushion to this chair (as an addition) for those children who are a little smaller and I would also add a hard support for in between the children’s legs as if the child is smaller, it’s easy for them to slip down. Because the chair is plastic, the support cushion would keep them more secure in the seat.
